burned valve is likely the culprit.... or bad rings.... hook air up to that cyclinder one at a time.... and listen where the air is escaping... be aware that the motor will rotate till the piston is at the bottom of it's rotation. if it's a burned valve you will have to remove the head and replace it but somewhat easier job then replacing the rings. darn almost forgot.... it can also be a blown head gasket.... same procedure but you might need a brush and some soap water to test for an air leak at the side of the head. when you are done spray some wd 40 on it to get the water off so the spark plugs do not arc.

SOURCE: My check engine light stays on.
You can take your car to Auto Zone and they will scan the codes for FREE. They will also let you know the part causing the problem. 99% of the time it's a sensor that you may be able to replace yourself if your handy with cars. Without the codes, it's random guessing to fix the problem.

It appears that there might be a TSB (technical service bulletin) issued on this vehicle by Mitsubishi. Check with your local dealer to verify for certain. One link with brief summary of this on a 1998 model (yours might fall into this class too?) can be seen here and is as follows:
1998 Mitsubishi ECLIPSE 98 - Transmission TCM PCM > POWER TRAIN : AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION : CONTROL MODULE (TCM, PCM) [Part 103100 ]
TSB No: 01 NHTSA ID: 622435 , May 01, 2001 : Replacement:
Summary: subject regarding diagnostic trouble code p1390 pcm relearn.
A fuller discussion on a 1996 with this code can be seen here. Scroll down to the answer.
Perhaps these will provide a bit of information prior to contacting your dealer. I've never worked in a dealership that charged for looking up & providing info on TSB's. Good luck.

the multi-center display (clock, radio display) is on the cigarette lighter circuit i believe it is fuse 12 in the fuse panel on the left side of dash by the door.
